The control room (from the studio) does look like an aquarium with the huge window and the silent action of the animals encased within it. Reactions to performances reflected… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   When you first look at a synthesizer, it can be a little intimidating with all the knobs and switches and buttons.

The main components you’ll find in a synthesizer: —Oscillators (Red)—Mixer (Pink)—An Envelope Generator (Orange)—LFO (Yellow)—Filter (Green) Additionally you’ll usually find options for: —Polyphony—Arpeggiator—Effects—Ring… View this story

    On CBS’ TV show Lucky Dog, animal trainer and behaviorist Brandon McMillan, visits his local shelter to rescue hard-to-love, out-of control, untrained, and unadoptable dogs. He then takes the dog back to his ranch for training before finding each one a home. Unfortunately, filming with out-of-control pups isn’t always walk in the (dog) park. As a result, Digital Hybrid Wireless technology from Lectrosonics played a vital role in capturing the show’s audio. Danny Hammer is the location sound mixer for… View this story

    DPA Microphones have turned up in some unusual places, but inside Scarlett Johansson’s t-shirt has to be one of the brand’s more exotic locations. Three of the company’s d:screet 4060 miniature microphones were used to capture Johansson’s performance during the making of Lucy, a new film directed by Luc Besson that was just released on July 25. According to French sound engineer Stéphane Bucher, the d:screet 4060s were absolutely perfect for this role because they offered exceptional audio quality. As… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   1. Drumsticks Don’t assume the drummer will show up with a variety of drum sticks. The weight and tip of a stick can greatly affect tone. If the drummer is using nylon tip sticks and the sound is too bright on the cymbals it would be great to try some wood tip sticks. A thin stick vs. a fat stick will affect the drum differently as well. And it’s not… View this story
